Dayton, Ohio. – The newest expansion at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force officially opened on Wednesday, June 8, at Wright Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton. Secretary of the Air Force Deborah Lee James was on hand to mark the grand opening. Barge Waggoner was the primary engineering firm.

The $40 million-hangar now holds the largest collection of U.S. presidential and exotic research aircraft in the world, including the Boeing 707 (formerly Air Force One) that carried President John F. Kennedy’s body home after his 1963 assassination. Expansion also allowed the Research and Development Gallery and Space Galleries to be relocated; the latter giving visitors direct access to the Crew Compartment Trainer (CCT) used for astronaut training and a full-size replica of a NASA space shuttle payload bay. The CCT allows visitors to see inside the cockpit and mid-deck areas.

The museum expansion adds approximately 25% additional exhibit space than was previously housed in the existing three museum buildings, which is home to more than 300 aircraft, spacecraft, satellites and missiles also on display.

Officials hope the new, 100% privately-funded 224,000-square-foot hangar will bring the museum more than one million tourists each year closer to several iconic planes in American’s history. The largest Ohio attraction is now open free-of-charge. It is estimated to have an annual $40 million economic impact on the surrounding area.

Chattanooga, Tenn. – Barge Waggoner has been a part of shaping the scenic South Chickamauga Creek Greenway through multiple phases of work. The most recently completed segment of the South Chickamauga Creek Greenway connects the Greenway to the Riverwalk. The Trust for Public Land recently held day-long activities to celebrate the newest connector. Families were able to bring their bikes, running shoes, or test out a kayak or a paddle board on the creek.

Barge Waggoner was recently selected by The Trust for Public Land to provide design services for the last segment of the Greenway, which will create a complete greenway connection from Camp Jordan Park in East Ridge to the Saint Elmo community at the foot of Lookout Mountain.

The long-term vision for greenways in Chattanooga is to create a linear park system that would link sites throughout the city with trails and greenways that would be safe and accessible alternative for cyclists and pedestrians to experience the outdoors. Barge Waggoner has supported the Chattanooga community implement this vision by designing various segments of the trail network over the years.

The Trust for Public Land has taken a leadership role to support the City to make final connections of the greenway system. Since 1994, TPL has worked with the City of Chattanooga, acquiring land and easements to create a large system of parks and greenways for the public to enjoy.

Barge Waggoner will provide civil engineering design services for the trail and boardwalk. The firm will also perform survey work on the site as well as other services during construction.

Nashville, Tenn. - Two professionals from Barge, Waggoner, Sumner and Cannon, Inc. recently presented at the 2016 Tennessee Water Resources Symposium, an American Water Resources Association - Tennessee Section event.

Trevor Cropp’s presentation focused on utilizing Next-Generation Radar (NEXRAD) data for determination of precipitation in the absence of gage data. He describes the challenges encountered when using the raw NEXRAD data provided by the National Climactic Data Center, including the distortions caused by the radar site’s proximity to the watershed and temporal anomalies that require detection and removal.

Adrian Ward presented on the development of an HEC-HMS hydrologic model and HEC-RAS hydraulic model for the Big Creek drainage basin near the City of Millington, Tennessee. In 2010, Big Creek experienced a historic flood event that exceeded previous records and flooded the city of Millington and the U.S. Navy’s Naval Support Activity (NSA) facility. These models were used to provide various flood simulations and cost estimates to determine the most desirable park alternative that benefits the most residents.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2016 NIRSA Award UT RecSports webview

Knoxville, Tenn. – Barge, Waggoner, Sumner and Cannon, Inc. was recently awarded an Outstanding Sports Facilities Award for the University of Tennessee RecSports Complex at the 2016 National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA) conference in Orlando, Florida.

NIRSA Outstanding Sports Facilities Awards recognize innovative designs of new, renovated, or expanded recreational facilities at the collegiate level. These awards showcase facilities that demonstrate excellence in architectural design, functionality, and how well the facility meets its intended purpose.

The University of Tennessee’s RecSports Complex on Sutherland Avenue experiences more than 10,000 students participating in sport clubs and intramural programs each year. Barge Waggoner designed the development of UT Knoxville’s new $14 million intramural sports complex, which opened for play in August 2013. The complex includes eight large, lighted multi-purpose sports fields; two dedicated, lighted softball fields; two softball field “overlays” on the natural turf multi-purpose fields; three NCAA competition level lighted sand volleyball courts; a central administration and restroom building; a large pavilion; and a maintenance building.

Four of the multi-purpose fields are synthetic turf. Construction of the remaining four multi-purpose fields used the latest in sports field construction techniques including a “Cambridge” underground drainage system. These fields provide space for soccer, flag football, and lacrosse, and accommodate softball on the overlays.

A Musco Light Structure Green sports field lighting technology saves 30% in energy costs over traditional systems and reduces light trespass from the fields to almost zero. This is important, as residential neighborhoods border the site on two sides. A lightning detection system warns of approaching hazardous weather. Sustainable design features include LED site lighting, landscaping with native species, bio-swales treating runoff from the parking lots, and a collection of storm drain runoff into a pond that is also fed by a well and used for site irrigation, among many others.

Memphis, Tenn. – The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) recently announced that Shelby County Government will receive over $60 million to make the community more resilient against future flood damage and develop sustainable community amenities.

Shortly after a historic series of 2011 storms, Shelby County was identified by HUD as Tennessee’s most impacted area. A Presidential Disaster Declaration was made and served as the basis for the County’s eligibility to participate in the National Disaster Resilience Competition (NDRC). The NDRC is a national competition for activities that advance resilience efforts in states, territories, and local jurisdictions.

The competition gives resources to communities aiding them in the ability to plan and implement disaster recovery to increase resiliency for future threats or hazards, weather related or not. This effort would also improve the quality of life for existing residents and promote economic prosperity. The NDRC applies an analysis that is science-based and forward-looking related to recovery, resilience, and revitalization needs.

As part of the NDRC application, Barge Waggoner teamed with other consultants to devise viable resiliency projects in some of the most vulnerable areas of Memphis and Shelby County prone to flooding. The firm worked with Shelby County in their efforts to first secure the safety of its residents by limiting the potential of future flooding, but also to develop a concept that was sustainable and beneficial to the community. The concept also needed to promote economic growth while preventing current economic drivers from relocating.

The consultant team worked with several government entities, such as City of Millington Engineering Office, The Shelby County Public Works Division, the Memphis and Shelby County Office of Sustainability, Shelby County Housing Department, Shelby County Office of Preparedness, and the City of Memphis Engineer’s Office.

Implementation of the projects’ designs will start soon and should be completed in three years.
